HOW I KNEW I WAS PREGNANT // FALSE NEGATIVES

Negative Pregnancy Test Reasons: 1. You are not pregnant. There are cases when a woman is not pregnant. This is the most basic reason for getting a negative pregnancy test. The 2. Miscalculation. 3. You are performing a test too early.

While your pregnancy symptoms may have been all too real, a negative test may suggest that you’ve experienced a very early miscarriage (also known as a chemical pregnancy). This occurs when there is a problem with the fertilized egg, most commonly a chromosomal disorder that makes the pregnancy non-viable. There are a number of reasons this can happen, including: Breastfeeding Hormonal birth control Illness Poor sleep Too much exercise Travel Very high stress. You can get a negative pregnancy test result due to the following reasons: The most trivial cause of a false-negative pregnancy test is using an expired or defective because of the wrong storage conditions one.

Before buying a pregnancy test, make sure the pack is intact. The time of implantation has an influence on the test result. In some rare cases, a pregnancy test result that does not increase as expected might be due to an ectopic pregnancy. (5). An ectopic pregnancy is when the egg attaches anywhere outside the womb. This can be dangerous for many reasons and could affect the rise in hormone levels needed to test positive for pregnancy.

Conversely, if your hCG levels are too high, your pregnancy test can also return a false-negative. This is called a “hook effect.” It’s very rare, but it does happen. Pregnancy tests are designed to track a specific range of hCG in the body. Another reason you might be feeling pregnant yet getting a negative pregnancy test is that your urine is too diluted when you test it.

The more water, juice, etc. that you consume, the more hydrated you become. The more hydrated you are, the less concentrated your pee will be. Causes of a False Negative on a Pregnancy Test You Tested Too Early Your body won’t begin to produce hCG until the embryo has been implanted on the wall of your uterus. This implantation tells your body to begin producing the hormone that will. You might be pregnant but still get a negative result on a home pregnancy test because: The test was taken too soon.

A home pregnancy test will be positive only if it detects the pregnancy hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). When an egg is fertilized after you ovulate, it takes about a week to travel through a fallopian tube to the uterus. Reasons for a false negative pregnancy test result 1. You took a pregnancy test too early “Home pregnancy tests measure a specific hormone in the urine called human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), which is only present when a woman is pregnant,” Nikki explains.

A common error in performing home pregnancy tests is doing the test too early in pregnancy before a significant rise in hCG level; this can cause a false-negative result (Pagana & Pagana, 2013) (see Clinical Reasoning Case Study).

If there’s no hCG for the test to find, it’s because the hormone is only present in pregnant women, and a negative result is triggered.

  • My last period was July 5th and I never got my period this month the test were negative what should I do my ob office says it should show up by now but told me to test again?

  • im in the same boat never missed a period in my life…missed my period..boobs massive…bump no positive…no crazy except cramping

  • When this month is over with it will be 2 months since I’ve had my period & I’ve took a few home test in between but they’ve all been negative. I usually do have irregular periods but this is kinda the first time it hasn’t came while I have been being sexually active and lately I’ve been having heavy cramps and feeling extremely nauseated, should I get a blood test or give it till the rest of the month before seeing a doctor?

  • I’m currently 5 days late and really hoping this was my month. We lost my lil boy at 26 weeks and I feel so empty. So far I’ve had horrible cramps no spotting at all and I’m so tired. I’ve taken so many expensive test and nothing not even a speck to give me hope. Gonna go and buy some Walmart ones today to see and cont trying. Good to know you didn’t get anything till 7 days

  • Hlo mam meri wife k periods 21 july ko aae the or aj 28 aug h ab tk periods nhi aae or pregnency test b negative h or lab se bhi test kra lia vo b negative aya h to ab kya ho skta h she is pregnant or not, mam pliz ap ab btae mujhe kya krna chaie

  • I’m currently going through the same thing… I will be 7 days late tomorrow and I have taken multiple test and they all came out negative had a blood test and negative. I’m having lots of lower abdomen pressure cramps, back pain, sore breast, nausea, and watery discharge for the last 3 days… I’m so frustrated.

  • Im 50 days late. Ive taken 10 pregnancy tests all different brands and every single one has said Negative. Doctor’s appointment is this Friday. I only have 2 symptoms: Missed periods and watery discharge. Other than that, completely normal. I have been taking prenatal vitamins since they have better benefits than my regular every day vitamins and I’ve also been eating much healthier and working out/yoga 5 times a week. Unsure if any of that could be a cause, but I’ll find out on Friday!

  • my periods 6day late i check up 2tym early in the morning but result is negative can u help me i am prgnt or not plzz help me nd answer me

  • I have taken multiple tests. I am almost a week late. All tests come back negative however, ovulation test came back as peak (which is weird because the timing doesn’t line up with that). Additionally my breasts feel more sensitive. Have had random cramping too. Wondering if I am really pregnant! Fingers crossed ����

  • I have all the pregnancy symptoms and we tried all last cycle but I see all these people like you said 6po 11dpo get positives so I’m very discouraged because I’m still getting negative.
    I’m going to wait till my expected period but it’s pretty tough to wait especially since its so mentally draining.

  • Thank you for this video! I’ve been having symptoms that I never experience during pms. I even dreamt the other night that I took two pregnancy test and they both came back positive, also the unexplainable hunger and the sharp pain on my lower back that never happened during pms before, plus cramps as well as the creamy discharge. Already took 3pregancy tests and they’re all negative. My AF is already late. Idk what to do:(

  • Yes mam mere sath asa hi ho raha h ma’am mere sath hi Aisa hi Ho Raha hai 15 din ho gaye lekin test ke bad meri report negative a rahi hai aur mere periods bhi barabar acche se a rahe the usmein koi problem bhi nahin hai nahin hai mujhe periods me some mere Khul ke aata tha abaki bar jab mai Mahina upar hui ho 15 din ho gaya report meri negative aaye phir bhi

  • I’m kind of in…the reverse situation.
    I used 10 miu tests and saw a faint line on 10 out of 13…. >_> so wtf about the other three?! I’m feeling so conflicted and annoyed. The day before, I took 8 tests and all were positive. I officially hate One Step and won’t be using them in the future. I don’t have any other choice but to just wait and test with a FR and see if anything pops up. So disappointed.

  • Meri late shadi ho gayi mere periods miss ho gaye pregnancy test negative aa gaya muje dar hai menopause ki wajah se mat ho gaye hai 6 din baad test kiya

  • Very similar! I had what I can only guess is implantation bleeding at about 6DPO (cant think of anything else it could be it was very weird!) Light cramps in lower ab and back since that day, exhausted, spots on forehead, hungry! I took a test at 11DPO and negative. Due on period on Wednesday. My body just feels different, but I’m now convinced it’s just PMS and feel like I’ll come on my period any day! (Felt like that though for a week which never usually happens!) We are trying so it just sends your brain loopy with all of the symptoms being so similar to PMS! Thanks for your video really good to hear others’ stories:) will test again if I end up being late:)

  • I am currently on 10DPO. I have been testing since 4DPO and have been getting all Negatives. I just KNOW that I am pregnant. Wal-Mart stresses me out so I don’t normally shop there but I am on my way to buy the Equate brand right now! Thanks so much!

  • My partner and I had been trying as well, my last period was April 11th 54 days ago, my period was supposed to start on may 15th, I took a test may 28th.
